My Baptism Day

It's Card reveal day at SOUS! Today we have a fantastic card sketch done by Sandi Clarkson!


Isla's Baptism was coming up and I wanted to make her a card for her special day. This is what I came up with based on the sketch. I tried a couple of new things here (although you can't really tell..lol) I always had trouble adhering things like lace to a layout, until I discovered Mod Podge.  It's so easy to use and believe me, nothing moves once you put something onto your paper with it. Much better than all my previous trials! I also broke down and bought some embossing powder. I've never tried using it before, but thought I'd give it a whirl on my little flowers. Up close, you can see it, but I'm not sure it really shows up here. It's something that I will definitely try out again on a bigger surface.


Hope you can come, join in and try out the sketch!
